Apple iPad Air is a high quality iOS tablet released back in 2013, which counts with a great 64-bit Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1400 megahertz, an enormous 9.7-inches display, and two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera.
The iPad Air is equipped with a Apple A7 system chip, backed up by an extremely powerful 64-bit Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1.4 GHz and only 1 GB RAM which is a bit disappointing considering its impressive CPU. To collaborate with graphic intensive applications, this tablet also counts with a 600 MHz PowerVR G6430 GPU. A great feature of this tablet is its 128 GB huge internal memory and though it doesn't include an SD extension slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.
Apple has made a really good design job making this tablet as lightweight as 16.86 oz. Talking about its construction materials, this tablet is mostly manufactured with Aluminium, which gives it a quality design and a better resistance. This tablet is only 9.45" long and 6.67 inches wide, but it still manages to hold a 9.7 inches display. The Apple iPad Air is very slim, with a thickness of just 0.3 inches. Apple made this tabletavailable just in black, gray and white.
This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. It is also able to shoot videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera counts with multiple amazing characteristics like digital image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.
This tablet has a very good 1536 x 2048 9.7 inches screen, which makes everything look very good. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.
This tablet has wifi connectivity (which it can share with other devices acting as a wireless modem), 4G LTE fast data connection or 3G fast internet connection, using HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The Apple iPad Air uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection and it works with both GSM and CDMA.
This tablet also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Localization and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
This device has an amazing 8820 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery that can keep it running for many hours without charging it at all. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is not replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, while with so much capacity you will probably discard this tablet before that happens.
Apple offers the Apple iPad Air for only $ 445, which is a quite low price for a tablet this level. No matter if you need this tablet for work, need a tablet to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, are looking for a tablet to play games or you love taking photographs, this device is a very good choice for you. When you buy this device you also receive USB Power Adapter and Lightning to USB Cable.
